Backward Compatible Original Xbox Games

A couple of days ago it was rumored that Xbox One Backwards Compatibility is finally going to get one of the most requested Xbox 360 games, Skate 2 and Crackdown 2 alongside others. While that has not been made official yet, Electronic Arts’ SSX is coming your way today as confirmed last month.

Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson, the Director of Programming for Xbox Live, has recently confirmed this through his official Twitter profile that the snowboarding game, Snowboard Supercross is going to be make available on Xbox One.

The game has also been added to the list of titles that are available through back compat, this is the same list where we had spotted six other games a couple of days ago. The games included DuckTales: Remastered, Hexic 2, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, Domino Master, and Unbound Saga.

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Keeps Expanding Its Library

Right now there are a number of other games that fans have been requesting Microsoft to bring on board, with Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim being right on top.

Microsoft has already made available the original Call of Duty Black Ops and also confirmed multi-disc support for the feature, further expanding the list of games that could be brought to the Xbox One.

Coming back to the newly added game, SSX, this is “one of the most critically acclaimed arcade franchises of all-time,” and allows players to “experience the franchise’s signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world.”

Utilizing NASA topographical satellite data, we’ve mapped out a Massive World for players to explore. Using a Google-Earth inspired interface, navigate throughout nine expansive mountain ranges and regions, each with multiple peaks and multiple drops. SSX packs reality-defying gameplay into every run letting players Race, Trick, and Survive down huge open mountains.

While this is no Skate 2 or Skate 3, snowboarding sure is fun and EA Sports SSX might actually be a title worth having while you wait for other must haves to arrive on Xbox One Backwards Compatibility.
